Challenge #144

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all.

It's Anne here again and I can't believe it's been over a year since I last posted on Ooh La La Creations.  I have to say a very big thank you to Wendi and Emma for asking me back and also a very big thank you to Dawn who took over from me when I had my crafty meltdown.  I'm over all that now and loving being back in the craft room.

I hope you are all getting organised for the big day next month and that your Christmas card box is filling up. It's amazing how quickly it seems to have come round.

We are having a DT call (see sticky post at top of blog) as Dawn has left our happy little band of crafters to have more time with her happy little band of family.  Enjoy spending more time with them Dawn and we all look forward to seeing you take part in our challenge when time allows and, of course, we'll keep in touch in Blogland.

Top 3
chosen by Anne (Stargroves)

Thank you so much everyone for all your stunning entries to the sewing challenge.  It is such a cliche, but my goodness it was hard to pick a Top 3.  It took me most of the afternoon to narrow it down to 6!  I found it so hard and tried to concentrate on those where the stitching really added to the creation.

Maya - A totally adorable Christmas card.  I love the colour combi she has used.  The inside is just as amazing as the front and when I read that she has just bought the coolest sewing maching ever, which she used so effectively on her card, well that really won me over.  

Congratulations Maya!
Please email Wendi at wenem@ooh-la-la-creations.com with your choice of
2 digi downloads from the shop

Tracy McDonald - A stunning and effective stitched sunburst design.  There's a great tutorial with this card too.

J Atterbury - I just adore this image and the stitching is a major part of the card, including the inside.  Lovely work.

Congratulations to all our winners.  
Please don't forget to pick your badge up from the side bar.
